Three explosions struck the team bus of German club side Borussia Dortmund Tuesday night, injuring at least one player.

The team bus was transporting the players from their hotel to Dortmund’s Westfalensadion for their UEFA Champions League quarter final clash against Monaco when the explosions occurred.

Police say there were three explosives hidden behind a hedge on the team’s route to the stadium, which detonated when the bus was in range.

Luckily it only shattered some windows on the bus, injuring defender Marc Bartra, who was cut by shards of glass and required surgery on his injured arm.

“Bartra was injured, on his hand and his arm, but nothing that would be life-threatening,” said Borussia Dortmund’s chief executive, Hans-Joachim Watzke.
